Our small dogs love to play and socialize. This group meets monthly so our lovable dogs can play with one another. All dogs under 25 lbs are welcome! Although our name might hint otherwise, we do not discriminate. All small dogs are welcome to join! Please suggest meet up ideas and locations!

Our general rules:

Please keep your dog up to date on all vaccines. If you're dog is sick the day of the meet-up please stay home.

Please bring bags to clean up your dogs waste.

Please be a responsible dog owner and maintain control of your dog for the benefit of everyone. Dogs that show repeated signs of aggression will be asked to leave.

Members who join this group with the intent of soliciting other members for any reason will be removed.


In talking with members we've decided to collect a $5 annual donation for membership to this group. Your $5 donation covers costs incurred from meetup.com (as an organizer we are charged $144 annually by meetup.com). We are asking our members to make a voluntary donation, which can be made online or in person at a event. Any extra funds collected will go toward purchasing supplies for our group.

If you have any questions, concerns, suggestions for events please let us know via the Contact link.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
